|About myself:||At age nine I built my first radio and have been interested in electronics ever since. While in the military I learned to repair digital electronics while no one else could figure them out. In 1969 I took a compuer course for IBM 360 and started hacking them. In 1976 I started building my first microcomputer, The COSMAC Elf as described in Popular Electronices. I gave that project up when I saw an ad in an electronics magazine for a 6502 system that could be built from bare baords. It was the OSI microcomputer. I started building it in about the fall of 1976 and completed it sometime in 1977 and upgraded it in 1978. In January 1980, I bought an Apple ][+ computer. In 1987 I built up and IBM AT PC compatible and have upgraded it many times since.|
I have worked with most types of PCs including CP/M-80 S100, Apple ][ series, Commodore Pet and C-64/128, TRS-80, IBM PC and many others including the first desktop PC ever made in which the original Intel 8008 microprocessor was based on.
